one replacement line can be cut to replace both front and rear lines simultaneously. Be sure to cut off
and discard the silver fittings which are already installed in the ends of the new hydraulic line before
figuring the length of the new line.
4. Slip a new compression ferrule over the caliper end of the new tubing, on far enough so that at
least 3mm of tubing extends through the ferrule. Orient the fitting with the sharp edge toward the
threaded sleeve (away from the caliper). Then press the barbed end of a new hydraulic line insert into
the end of the tubing. Press the end of the tubing into the caliper until it stops. Slide the threaded
sleeve down to the caliper and screw it in, being careful not to cross thread the fitting. Tighten the
threaded sleeve to 69-78 In-Lbs. (8-9 Nm.) Slip the black plastic cover from the old line over the
Go to step 5 of the "SHORTENING BRAKE LINES" section to complete the procedure. Once the new
line is installed, the system must be bled before the bike is ridden.
Perform the following steps every few months or as needed:
1. Lubricate the brake lever blade pivot with thick oil or grease.
2. Check to make sure that all bolts are tight to torque specification.
3. Remove the brake pads and check them for wear. See information above about the wear indicator
on the brake pads. Clean the slot in the caliper body of mud and other contamination. Do not use
compressed air to clean out the slot in the caliper body. Finish the job by cleaning the caliper body
and slot with the detergent and hot water solution.
WARNINGS FOR THE CODA EXPERT DISC BRAKE:
ATTEMPT TO WELD, CLAMP, OR OTHERWISE ATTACH A DISC BRAKE MOUNT TO A FRAME
OR FORK. DO NOT USE CALIPER MOUNTING ADAPTERS OR BRACKETS UNLESS THEY ARE
MANUFACTURED BY OR SPECIFICALLY RECOMMENDED BY CODA. USE OF NON-STANDARD
BRAKE CALIPER MOUNTS PLACES THE RIDER AT RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH.
THE BRAKE CALIPER PADS MUST MAKE FULL CONTACT WITH THE BRAKE ROTOR. EACH
WHEEL MUST BE INSERTED COMPLETELY INTO THE DROPOUTS AND SECURELY CLAMPED
IN PLACE. ADDITIONALLY, THE EXPERT'S BRAKE PADS ARE RIGHT AND LEFT SPECIFIC. IF
THE SURFACES OF THE BRAKE PADS ARE NOT ALIGNED WITH THE ROTOR, BRAKE
POWER MAY BE INSUFFICIENT, RESULTING IN A LOSS OF CONTROL OF THE BICYCLE AND
RISK OF INJURY OR DEATH TO THE RIDER.
INSPECT THE BRAKE LINES REGULARLY FOR ABRASIONS OR DAMAGE. DO NOT KINK OR
BEND BRAKE LINES. IMMEDIATELY REPLACE ANY DAMAGED BRAKE LINES WITH GENUINE
